End of Life

Share This Topic

The breath of life in all human beings is a gift from God (Genesis 2:7) and thus inherently holy. The NAE has pledged to protect the sanctity of human life and to safeguard its nature from womb to tomb. We believe that in cases where patients are terminally ill, death appears imminent and treatment offers no medical hope for recovery, it is morally appropriate to allow natural death to occur. Special care should be given to those who are dying. We also believe there is a profound moral distinction between allowing natural death and euthanasia, which is intentionally ending a life through medical intervention.
